Squirtle Squad Will Return in Pokemon Anime

The fifth episode of the Final Chapter of Pokemon will bring back the Squirtle Squad. Early screenshots of the episode also show Bulbasaur and Charizard, as well as Team Rocket’s Wobbuffet. Oddly, even though Wobbuffet is not a Squirtle, they are also wearing the Squad’s signature sunglasses. [Thanks, Oricon!]

Pokemon: Aim to Be a Pokemon Master is the last adventure that Pokemon protagonist Ash will go on before his retirement. It depicts his adventures with Brock and Misty. In the original series, the Squirtle Squad caused trouble in Kanto until they had to team up with Ash to fend off Team Rocket. The Squirtle Squad ended up becoming firefighters for the town, and the leader of the gang joined Ash’s team as his Squirtle.

Not only does the Squirtle Squad fight fires now, but it also performs shows. However, Team Rocket seems to be planning something as their managers. In the screenshots you can see them wearing the Squad’s sunglasses just like their Wobbuffet. Because Ash’s Squirtle returned to the Squad during his Johto journey, this episode will also mark the return of this individual Pokemon since Ruby and Sapphire.

Pokemon: Aim to Be a Pokemon Master airs on Fridays, and the episode featuring the Squirtle Squad will air on February 10, 2023.
